Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease characterized by severe coughing fits.  Whooping cough starts off like the common cold and can turn into a persistent cough over time.

About BOOSTRIX

BOOSTRIX is now approved for use as a single dose for active booster immunization against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) in individuals 10 years of age and older.  In the U.S., BOOSTRIX was first approved for individuals aged 10-18 in May 2005.  In December 2008, the vaccine was approved for use in adults 19-64 in the U.S.  Since May 2005, more than 20 million doses of BOOSTRIX have been distributed in the U.S. to help protect adolescents and adults from whooping cough, as well as tetanus and diphtheria.
